(THUNDER BAY, ON) – As city council appears to be battling the crime issues in Thunder Bay by discussing creating yet another committee, more concerning crime has changed a couple young lives in the city. The following incident unfolded today, February 9th, 2020, around 5:00 pm.
A male youth was walking down the alley behind the ever amazing McKellar Confectionary with two friends when crime struck out of nowhere. The youth, who was with two friends, was abruptly and violently confronted by a lurking male.
The suspect jumped out from behind a building, knife in hand, armpits stinking, while sketchily asking “Sup Bro? You wanna die?”. Fear, expectedly, overwhelmed the trio of law-abiding youths. It is at this point that the one youth was punched with a closed fist in the side of the head.
That’s when the criminal demanded their belongings. He managed to flee the scene with a Coral iPhone XR and a vape. The youths stood in shock, not knowing what to do or how to react to such a blatant and violent criminal experience.
Fleeing like a coward, the suspect was last spotted heading north on Vickers towards Dease, where a high concentration of trap houses run by southern Ontario gang members exist. The cell phone is useless as it is iCloud locked, but we have learned that the southern Ontario gang members will give about $20 worth of drugs for newer iCloud locked iPhones and then when they return to southern Ontario they will take them to Pacific Mall where the phones are sold for between $100 and $150, to be used for parts.
The suspect is described as:
- Five-foot ten-inches tall.
- 200 pounds.
- Wide head.
- Large jaw.
- Brown jacket.
- Baseball cap.
- Sweaty armpits.
- Multicoloured bandana.
- Black pants.
- Shelby Ch’ng supporter.
The victim is hopeful the phone may be recovered. The serial number is F17XNYRXKXKT and the IMEI number is 357338095368828. Police have been notified about this incident and an investigation is underway.
How many committees need to be formed before something meaningful is done?
